Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469111

Isaac Asimov Mulls “How Do People Get New Ideas?”
Isaac Asimov  October 20, 2014

A never before published essay on creativity that Asimov wrote for ARPA. "[Arthur Obermayer:] When I first became involved in the project [for ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency], I suggested that Isaac Asimov, who was a good friend of mine, would be an appropriate person to participate. He expressed his willingness and came to a few meetings. He eventually decided not to continue, because he did not want to have access to any secret classified information; it would limit his freedom of expression. Before he left, however, he wrote this essay on creativity as his single formal input. This essay was never published or used beyond our small group. When I recently rediscovered it while cleaning out some old files, I recognized that its contents are as broadly relevant today as when he wrote it. It describes not only the creative process and the nature of creative people but also the kind of environment that promotes creativity."___Isaac Asimov Mulls “How Do People Get New Ideas?”

"I swear every American has seen a Solomon Butcher photograph,” says the author John E. Carter. “I think that's a real easy bet.”

Very few Americans however, know the name Solomon D. Butcher. His photos, distinctive portraits of the hardy homesteaders of the American West, often standing in front of their small sod houses, have become the ubiquitous representation of settling the western United States in the late 1800s. They’re included in nearly every American history book depicting the early settlers following the passage of the Homestead Act. In fact, his photos are some of the only that exist of this pivotal moment in the country's history.

History of Moon Exploration

Today in History: NASA Again Fails to Hit Moon with Spacecraft
On October 18, 1962 — 52 years ago today — NASA launched Ranger 5, a spacecraft that was intended to transmit photos of the lunar surface to Earth for 10 minutes prior to its planned high-speed impact into the Moon. As a consequence of a never-determined malfunction, the spacecraft ran out of power, ceased operating, and missed the Moon by 450 miles (725 kilometers) — about the distance of Boston to Washington, D.C. (not too far off). 

This mission was the 5th failed flight in NASA’s Ranger Program. The U.S.S.R. had also failed 5 times in attempts to hit the Moon with a spacecraft. At this point, the prospects of man ever reaching the Moon seemed remote — inasmuch as neither the U.S. nor the U.S.S.R. had demonstrated the capability to consistently “crash land” a spacecraft on the Moon in over a dozen tries (although the U.S.S.R. impacted the Moon once, back in 1959, after several failed attempts) — not to mention the staggering undertaking of a manned soft landing on the Moon and return to Earth. So President Kennedy’s publicly stated goal of achieving this herculean task before the end of the 1960s was going to take greatly sharpened focus. Nonetheless, failed missions are also great ways to learn, and learn NASA scientists did.

After two more attempts by NASA, Ranger 7 successfully impacted the Moon in July 1964. Just 4-1/2 years later, in December 1968, NASA had mastered the technical and engineering complexities of a lunar orbiter mission and sent the first men to orbit the Moon (without landing). And in just 5 years from July 1964, NASA achieved the goal set by President Kennedy in 1961 — landing men on the Moon and returning them safely to Earth. 

The “race to the Moon” was not an illusion, as a careful study of the missions below reveals. And the Soviet Union — from the first satellite in Earth orbit, to the first successfully-controlled lunar lander (February 1966), to the first successful lunar orbiter (April 1966), to the first successful lunar flyby and return safely to Earth with a landing in the Indian Ocean (September 1968), to the second successful lunar flyby and return to Earth with a landing in the Soviet Union (November 1968) — was ahead of the United States in this race. On this day in 1962, after the fifth failed Ranger mission and 15 out of 18 failed lunar missions (counting both U.S.S.R. and U.S. missions), achieving a manned lunar landing looked like a highly daunting, if not impossible, goal for man to achieve, especially by the end of the decade:

Fusion news : I normally don't post about breaking news, but this one is interesting, and I'm cautiously optimistic. I owe this post to +Gary Ray R and +Aaron Coakley who commented on some other posts and on the new announcement from Lockheed at the Skunkworks facility.

The theory is not the issue - its the engineering.

Fusion is the holy grail of our times. If someone does create a commercial system, it can change the whole issue with carbon emissions. Technically, fusion is possible even now, but bootstrapping and net gain are the issues, and as the LLNL folks found, its one thing to theoretically make assumptions of the engineering, and quite another to actually demonstrate it in the lab. Fusion is possible. Its just very hard to replicate what the Sun does!

From +Gary Ray R's research : "I did find the patent application for the new Lockheed Compact Fusion Reactor by the lead scientist at Lockheed, Thomas John Mcguire. There are drawings on the first 15 pages, description starts on page 16. http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20140301518.pdf." (Talks about the diagrams as well as the text of the patent). Btw if you're not following Gary you probably should!

From the Article: Most existing fusion devices slam together atoms using a tokamak, a magnetic device that contains the superheated plasma required for fusion to occur. The problem is, the energy required to sustain the reaction is almost as much as what's created by the reaction. Lockheed says they've figured out how to solve that problem, using their CFR, a jet-engine-sized device. They've changed the process for holding the plasma in a way they say has 10 times the output of a tokamak.They also say there's no risk of a meltdown, and that radioactive waste will be considerably lessened.

No prototype has been built or tested yet, though, and this research field is littered with failures, despite millions of dollars of investment.

This could very well change everything....

Unlike the E-Cat scam that was making the rounds earlier this week, this new announcement from Lockheed-Martin -- that their Skunk Works team has been working on a compact fusion reactor which may be at the working-prototype reactor stage within five years, and productionizable a few years after that -- is actually quite interesting. They haven't broken any laws of physics: this is a magnetic-confinement fusion reactor, and their advances have been clever engineering and coming up with smarter ways to shape the confinement fields. 

(For those who know the subject: the details aren't 100% clear to me, but it looks like they're building a pair of magnetic cusps facing one another, and using a Polywell-like approach to "bounce" plasma off of those and into the center where the fusion happens. Which is not an insane design)

Rather nicely, the people doing this design have actually thought through how it would fit into existing power architectures. (Very few people working on fusion have any experience with that) They expect the units to stay around the size of the device you see in the photo below -- truck-transportable nodes, each producing around 100MW. One could run a ship; a building full of them, or perhaps more conveniently, several different buildings in different places, could run a city. (As my experience in deploying big hardware has taught me, having your system take the form of a bunch of identical medium-sized nodes is really wonderful. If the nodes are too small, you spend all your time dealing with how to wire thousands of things up; if they're too big, then your smallest quantum of deployable capacity is a pain in the ass. 100MW is just about perfect for power generation.) 

If this system works, it would have nearly immediate commercial viability; opex plus fuel for such a device is very low (less than any other kind of power plant running, even if you consider dumping pollutants into the air as absolutely free). Capex for early generations won't be cheap but won't be prohibitive, either, as you can buy in 100MW increments and easily scale up. Maintenance is straightforward. Direct pollutants are zero: the only waste product is Helium. (Probably not enough to be worth selling, but you could fill some party balloons) There's an indirect pollutant, in that the neutron absorber shell which gathers the energy from the reaction will gradually be activated and turn radioactive; this shell will probably have to be replaced every twenty years or so, but (especially with clever choice of materials) isn't actually that radioactive and isn't that much material, either.

There have been lots of fusion designs which have seemed promising in the past, but this one seems to have a lot of engineering good sense behind it, and contact with practicalities. That makes me interested.

So it's still far too early to be popping the champagne corks, but it's a promising design being put together by serious people, and so I'd say that it has a decent chance of actually going somewhere. ___This could very well change everything....

Spacecraft Selfie

Rosetta Comet 67/P Spacecraft Selfie at 16 km | ESA
Using the CIVA camera on Rosetta’s Philae lander, the spacecraft have snapped a ‘selfie’ at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko from a distance of about 16 km from the surface of the comet. The image was taken on October 7, 2014, and captures the side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of Rosetta’s 14 m-long solar wings, with the comet in the background.

Two images with different exposure times were combined to bring out the faint details in this very high contrast situation. The comet's active ‘neck’ region is clearly visible, with streams of dust and gas extending away from the surface.

Charlie Moore and Frank Beacham
This is +Frank Beacham's story of the influence of #bluegrass  musician Charlie Moore on his early career as a DJ

I was in the tenth grade of high school when I ventured one Saturday to the local radio station, WHPB, in nearby Belton, South Carolina. It was a few minutes drive from my home in Honea Path and I drove my old 1942 Willys army jeep to the station parking lot.
Being the weekend, there was only one person there — the on-air DJ — who was doing his shift. Through the glass control room window facing the outer lobby, he motioned me inside.
I introduced myself. He was a friendly fellow and introduced himself as Charlie Moore. It was a quiet time at the studio and he engaged me in conversation. I told him I was in high school and wanted to work in radio part-time. “How do I get a job here?,” I asked.

Charlie Moore and Frank Beacham
This is +Frank Beacham's story of the influence of #bluegrass  musician Charlie Moore on his early career as a DJ

I was in the tenth grade of high school when I ventured one Saturday to the local radio station, WHPB, in nearby Belton, South Carolina. It was a few minutes drive from my home in Honea Path and I drove my old 1942 Willys army jeep to the station parking lot.
Being the weekend, there was only one person there — the on-air DJ — who was doing his shift. Through the glass control room window facing the outer lobby, he motioned me inside.
I introduced myself. He was a friendly fellow and introduced himself as Charlie Moore. It was a quiet time at the studio and he engaged me in conversation. I told him I was in high school and wanted to work in radio part-time. “How do I get a job here?,” I asked.
Learn the ropes, Charlie responded. Then he handed me the opportunity of a lifetime. I was welcome to hang out and watch what he did. Maybe if I picked enough skills, I could get hired at the station. That’s all I needed to hear.
Every weekend in the following weeks, I joined Charlie Moore on his shift. I learned a few things about him that I used to my advantage. When he wasn’t working at the radio station, Charlie was on the road singing bluegrass music.
Musicians made little money performing in those days and Charlie needed the salary from the radio job, as well as the station’s studio facilities to record his music.
I also noted that Charlie was always tired and was taking amphetamine pills. I soon learned that if I could run the audio board and play the records, it would allow Charlie to lie on the couch and catch catnaps between records. I had found my entree.
I became so proficient at letting Charlie sleep that I would often wake him just before he had to go on the air. I’d hold a microphone over him while he lay on the couch, and he’d introduce the next record.
I quickly won a friend in Charlie Moore, who appreciated a young kid doing all the dirty work while letting him catch a few winks. As I gained more skills, Charlie had me run the audio board and record his music in the studio.
Whether the station management knew or didn’t know about these recordings, I’ll never know. But on weekends, when no one else was around, the studio would suddenly fill with bluegrass musicians.
In the studio at WHPB, we had a classic RCA 44B ribbon microphone in a small studio connected to an RCA board and Roberts and Magnacord reel-to-reel tape recorders. It was a similar set-up in that era to the Sun or Stax Studios where some great music was being recorded only a few hours away. Performers could stand all around the big microphone and sing. I recorded hours of mono recordings of Charlie and his band members.
It would be forty years later before I would learn that many of those players were members of Bill Monroe’s great band, the Blue Grass Boys. And the tapes were made into recordings that are still played on jukeboxes to this day. Charlie Moore told me very little about what was really going on.
I had completely lost touch with Charlie Moore and when I began to look into his life. I was surprised at what I didn’t know. When we worked together, I knew nothing of his major musical and songwriting talent. I knew him only in the context of the radio station.
Searching on the Internet, I discovered that Travers Chandler, a professional bluegrass musician whose band, Avery County, is based in the Asheville, North Carolina area, has written about Charlie Moore. In fact, Travers Chandler revers Charlie, crediting him as a major influence in his own career. I called Travers to ask about Charlie.
“When I heard him sing on Truck Drivers Queen, I knew I wanted to be a bluegrass entertainer, but even more importantly I wanted to SING like Charlie Moore,” Travers told me. In fact, Traver’s band, Avery County, was named as a tribute after a Charlie Moore album by the same name. Travers never knew Charlie personally, but his father did. They were drinking buddies.
When I worked with Charlie Moore at WHPB, he was in his late 20s. Only a year or two earlier, he had teamed with Bill Napier, a former member of the Clinch Mountain Boys. Moore and Napier signed a recording contract with King Records and began performing on television in Greenville and Spartanburg S.C., and in Panama City, Florida.
I remember watching Charlie on television early in the morning before going to school. It was hard for me to grasp his grueling life and his constant working schedule. He would be up at 5 a.m. to do the TV show and then out in the evening to play personal appearances. On weekends, he would work at WHPB. At least I better understand why he was always tired and taking those pills.
Charlie never introduced me to the musicians I recorded, but there’s a good chance I also recorded he and Bill Napier. “I know there were lots of people who recorded in Belton at WHPB who were members of Bill Monroe's band. Many essential recordings of legends were made in places like Belton, and at little radio stations in Virginia and North Carolina,” Travers told me.
“I know that Carl Story recorded some there in the 1960s and there’s a good chance that you recorded a bunch of stuff there that ended up on vinyl that people seek out today. I have to believe that Charlie had a hand in it, because Charlie and Carl were tight at one time,” Travers continued.
“You didn't know then what you were part of. It was legendary. At that time, musicians were starving to death. The tapes recorded at the radio stations would be sent to the record labels the artists were working with and they would be pressed and released. Typically as 45s. A lot of times, it was just a wink and nod with the stations. Sometimes the stations were fine with it.”
At the time a lot of bands were working out of radio stations. In the late 50s and early 60s, bluegrass music almost perished. If an artist was making a record, it was on a shoestring budget type deal where little or no money was provided for recording or expenses or anything else.
Travers told me that even Bill Monroe didn't make much money in those days. “Bill was a stubborn man. He had a painful childhood. He was guarded in everything he did. He didn't trust anybody. And he was not a businessman. It wasn’t until the mid to late 1960s that he trusted someone enough to be his manager did he make any money.
“As to his band, back in those days it was a lot of swap and go. In the early 60s, somebody would leave the Stanley Brothers and go to work with Charlie and Bill Napier. Then they’d go work for Monroe or Stanley, then they’d get tired of that and come back. That’s just the way it was.”
Charlie Moore was close friends with Carter Stanley, one of the Stanley Brothers. “Carter was Charlie’s idol. Charlie wanted to be just like Carter. Both went out the same way. Carter drank himself to death at 41. Charlie drank himself to death at 44,” Travers said.
“When Charlie and Bill Napier broke up in about 1968, Charlie went to radio full time and became an MC at bluegrass shows and festivals. Charlie remained tight with everybody. He was friends with Ralph Stanley.”
Travers said he talked with Ralph Stanley about Charlie. “Ralph said my brother and Charlie Moore were the two greatest songwriters I've ever seen.”
Ironically, the great James Brown, who was also on King Records, ran the audio board for Charlie and Bill Napier in the Cincinnati, Ohio studio in the early days.
“Charlie would arrive at King and have to record 12 songs and wouldn't have any material,” Travers said. “Charlie was worn out. There was a coffee shop across the street and Charlie and Bill would go over there, sit down, and Charlie would write songs on a napkin. In an hour or so, he'd have 10 or 12 songs and they'd go the studio and work with the band. Bill Napier would come up with the melody and then they’d cut the record.”
In the mid 1970s, Charlie continued to struggle in the U.S. but began to find a following in Europe in places like Belgium, France and Holland. His luck, however, ran out. He began drinking heavily and looked old and frail by his early 40s. Charlie became ill on the way to a show in West Virginia. Taken to a hospital, he went into a coma. He died on Christmas Eve, 1979.
Ironically, Charlie Moore gave me an entry into an industry that became my life’s work, but I never knew his story until I hit my 60s. I only knew him as an incredibly nice guy who took the time to help a kid. Little did I know that he was a brilliant songwriter and musician and would leave behind stacks of unrecorded songs.
Bluegrass musician Jimmy Martin told Travers Chandler that Charlie Moore was one of the greatest singers ever in bluegrass and country music. Charlie could have been a country star in the 1960s, Martin said, but he refused to stray from what called his old time “hillbilly” music.
“Charlie almost came along at the wrong time,” Travis noted. “There was money to be made in those days. But he was always a step behind. It was a hard luck career.”
My work at WHPB won me a South Carolina State Broadcasters Association scholarship to the University of South Carolina. It was my ticket out of the tiny town of Honea Path.
After I left in 1966, I never spoke to Charlie Moore again. It took nearly 43 years for me to learn his story.___

Barclays PLC recently experimented with voiceprinting as an identification for its wealthiest clients. It was so successful that Barclays is rolling it out to the rest of its 12 million retail banking customers.

"The general feeling is that voice biometrics will be the de facto standard in the next two or three years," said Iain Hanlon, a Barclays executive.

On this day in 1955, Chrysler introduces the world's first in-car sound system.. vinyl record players, complete with an assortment of classical records, mounted under the dashboard. 

When purchased the vehicle came with six records and if you wanted more, you would have to order them from the dealership, who's collection was small. 

The special records were seven inches in size, transcribed on both sides, and pressed especially for Chrysler by Columbia Records. They gave up to 45 minutes of music and up to one full hour of speech per side.

Making up the collection are Tschaikovsky's Sixth Symphony, Borodini's Polovtsian Dances, Ippalitov-Ivanov's Procession of the Sardar, the complete score of the Broadway musical show Pajama Game, Walt Disney's Davey Crockett, Gene Autry and Champion, Romantic Moods by Percy Faith and his orchestra, quiet jazz by Paul Weston and his orchestra, Music of Cole Porter and Victor Herbert by Andre Kostelanetz and his orchestra, and dramatic readings from Bernard Shaw's Don Juan in Hell by a cast of top Hollywood and Broadway artists.

City Farms

City Farms : This is an attractive concept for a number of reasons. If we can grow food in cities where its consumed, it would substantially bring down the carbon footprint. Japan and Singapore have famously already created 'vertical farms.' Scientists are taking notice. An integrated approach could have huge benefits, especially since new techniques including hydroponics, aquaponics etc. If one could harness solar energy through fibre optics, energy harvesting through renewable energy sources, the reduction in the carbon footprint would be exponential. Read on to see the other benefits that could accrue...

The MIT CityFarm project : Harper's system promises to change the economics of industrial agriculture and to lessen its burden on the environment. By measuring and controlling light, moisture and nutrients, Harper says he can cut water consumption by 98 per cent compared to conventional agriculture; quadruple the growth speed of vegetables; completely eliminate chemical fertilisers and -pesticides; and double the nutrient density and flavour of his crops.

Energy and Yields : With grow racks rising 7.6 metres, Green Sense uses so-called hydro-nutrient film technology, allowing nutrient-rich water to trickle through pulverised coconut husk, rather than peat, because it's renewable. And as they are stacked vertically, not grown horizontally, Colangelo says the plants are at least ten times denser and can have 25 to 30 times more yield. "That's good for the Earth because there's no pesticide run-off and we have recycled water and recycled nutrients," says Colangelo, whose company has partnered with Philips to create what amounts to the biggest plant factory on the planet. "It uses a lot less energy."

Using our pollution : Their company, Zero Carbon Food (ZCF), will grow produce in vertical shelves, using an ebb-and-flood system: they will flood "benches" where the produce grows and let the nutrient-rich water ebb away. Plants will grow in a substrate of pulverised carpet, recycled from the Olympic Village in Stratford. To save energy and reduce the number of LED grow lights needed, ZCF will rotate them around the crops. And they will use electricity -- generated by small and portable micro-hydroelectric turbines -- to run the lights. "We have a lot of rain in London," says Dring. "You put these turbines in water drains and they feed into the energy grid." Dring will also harness one of the most pernicious problems of Tube travel: heat that collects in stations. "We are looking at pulling the heat out of the Tube stations and converting it into energy, as well as transferring the heat and the carbon dioxide into our grow rooms," Dring says, "which is like steroids for plants."
